13 tips to travel intelligentlyby TM Maria Be a king in your own kingdom
Traveling intelligently to optimize time, money and com Adidas. Make the most of the visit and the experience. If you want to travel to Thailand, here is the perfect option for Thailand Travel Guide.
These are my 13 tips for traveling intelligently.
1.- Travel in the low season.
When work permits, it is better to travel outside the holiday season. The prices are more accessible and there are much fewer people. Eye! Not all destinations have the same seasons. Spring and autumn are excellent moments in most destinations.
2.- The hotel to suit you.
You don't always have to look for the cheapest. You have to know how to spend money and take advantage. The hotel is perhaps the most important decision is the trip. If you visit a city make sure it has a good location and preferably has breakfast and WiFi included. If you visit a beach or rest destination it is worth investing in a hotel that has good quality facilities, beach and good services.
3.- Go Local.
Leaning towards local products is an extremely intelligent decision as well as ecological. Transporting products from other countries or locations always pollutes and the price will be paid at the end by the visitor.
4.- Travel light.
Charging with an industrial size backpack or suitcase is never recommended. In addition to how heavy it can be, there are many factors to consider.
5.- Use WiFi.
Many people ask me about the data packages of telephone companies. I have used them and they are usually useful if you need to be connected to the internet all the time, but they seem very expensive to me. For me the best option is WiFi. In many countries, free Wi-Fi is very common in hotels, restaurants and even parks. The WiFi finder app can help you find open networks to connect to and share your trips on social networks.
6.- Do the homework.
Planning is the best way to save money and time on a trip. The more you know your destination before stepping on it, the more you will enjoy the experience. Look for many hotel options, decide before arriving the places you want to visit and always have a plan B in case things do not happen as you planned.
7.- Treat yourself.
At least one night during your trip, treat yourself and visit a good restaurant. Get ready, book and enjoy. Find places that offer a unique culinary experience and let yourself go. The flavors are also a trip.
I have already spoken to you before my opinion about souvenirs. My advice is to get away from the typical "Made in China" memory and look for something more original and special. Some local designer offering clothes that you won't find anywhere else. Crafts made before your eyes. The possibilities are many but generally, they are not at first sight.
9.- Fewer countries more cities.
Although I know that not everyone has the opportunity to travel constantly. I strongly recommend not visiting more than two countries on a trip. Doing those tours where 6 countries are visited in two weeks seems like a barbarity where you don't know anything and you just see everything happen.
10.- Do not look for the famous, look for what you like.
It is difficult to resist the photo in the most famous places in the cities. Visit known museums or the squares of which books speak. But actually traveling is a personal experience and has to do with taste.
11.- Use coupons and discounts.
Many attractions, restaurants and even hotels have promotions and discounts. Use them in case they are useful to you. Most museums offer one day of free admission per month and all have special discounts for students, seniors, etc. Visit the websites of the places you want to visit and find out.
12.- Take advantage of loyalty programs.
If you are a frequent traveler and accumulate miles or points in hotels do not hesitate to use them. They usually expire and it is good to take advantage of them. Make the most of loyalty programs by informing yourself about all the options you have and have it as an option when looking for a hotel or flight.
13.- Be responsible.
The most important thing I think is to be responsible when traveling. The biggest difference between a traveler and a tourist is that the first one is usually generous and the second selfish. I explain. The tourist is generally not very aware of the impact of his presence in places and tries to do everything at home. In total, it is a few days or a few hours that he spends in the city and does not know if he will ever return in his life, so what else does he do if he does not behave up to it. The traveler, on the other hand, is more respectful and wants his presence to be helpful.
